So here’s the trailer for our latest short film. “Liaison” Premièring this Summer in Toronto, where we filmed it last year in a hectic 2 1/2 day schedule in between Festival events. That meant starting at 1 A.M. and filming through till 5 A.M, when we had to stop as dawn made it too bright for night shots.
This was shot on a Panasonic GH4, with minimal extra equipment. No tripod. No lighting, No crew. Just 2 actors (Paul and Melissa) and myself on camera. We used practical lighting. i.e. whatever was around, but then moulded the light with a black cloth.
Total budget 18 dollars. ..plot spoiler (for the padlock and chain), but we filmed in exclusive clubs, on a Sunseeker luxury yacht. …oh and Paul almost got roughed up, as people thought we were making a porn film. I wonder who gave them that idea?
Pitch perfect performance of Melissa and Paul. Acting drunk ..as though they had consumed large amounts of alcohol. What professionals!
